The Death of Elizabeth Gaskell – 12 November 1865

Posted on November 11th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

Elizabeth Gaskell (aka ‘Mrs Gaskell’), author of such classic Victorian and ‘Condition of England’ novels as North and South and Cranford, died in Holybourne, Hampshire, on 12 November 1865 – she was 55.

To commemorate the day, here is a newspaper tribute to Mrs Gaskell that was published on 18 November 1865.

We’ve also included two splendid illustrations for the novel, Cranford, which were published in ‘The Graphic’ newspaper.
